If you haven’t noticed by now, we love living on the Eastern Shore; but can you really blame us? Between the beaches, the history, and the beautiful wildlife, the Shore offers something for everyone to indulge in. One way to enjoy all of these natural wonders is by visiting the Delaware State Parks.

Delaware has 20 unique State Parks for you to visit and here are just a few reasons why:

  • At Bellevue State Park, Fort Delaware State Park, Port Penn Interpretive Center and Fort DuPont State Park, you can spend the day listening to the Delawareans and learn all about their history. You can even travel back in time to watch the Civil War come to life at these historic parks.
  • Looking for a peaceful place to escape to? The Lums Pond State Park, Killens Pond State Park, and Trap Pond State Park are where you can experience Delaware’s Freshwater Ponds. Enter a world of woodlands, fields and waterways as you boat, canoe, fish, camp or hike around these parks!
  • Take a relaxing stroll or hike to see rushing streams and rolling hills at the White Clay Creek State Park, Brandywine Creek State Park or Fox Point State Park. At these parks, you can find some of the finest hiking trails in the area!
  • Explore the beautiful ocean and bay shorelines at Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware Seashore State Park, Holts Landing State Park, or Fenwick Island State Park. Pack a picnic and enjoy the day swimming, surfing, boating, crabbing or sunbathing at these waterfront parks.
  • Adventure to the urban oases at the Wilmington State Parks and Alapocas Run State Park where you will find trails, parks and recreational opportunities, or stop by the Brandywine Zoo to see exotic animals such as Andean Condor, Gold Lion Tamarin and much more!
  • Retreat from the busy tourist resorts and enjoy public camping at one of Delaware’s state parks: Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware Seashore State Park, Trap Pond State Park, Killens Pond State Park, Lums Pond State Park or head over to the Cottages at Indian River Marina.

With spring right around the corner, we are getting excited for all of the outdoor fun to come! Grab your annual State Park pass today, resident or non-resident all are welcome.
